andrbea: worth rereading: soundsplausible 27 Jan '21 - 10:02 - 7290 Questor: buy into this British clean energy firm – it is the Arm Holdings of its generation Questor share tip: Ceres Power’s technology looks world-beating. But perhaps its true value is in its unusual business model Frustration, even anger, greeted the takeover in 2016 of Arm Holdings by Japan’s SoftBank. But those who were dismayed to see a rare British tech success story succumb to a foreign bidder may be cheered to know that there is a new Arm Holdings waiting in the wings – one that moreover looks more resistant to a premature takeover. This is at least the view of one fund manager who intends to hold on to the stock for many years in spite of a valuation that can look stretched. His optimism is based in part on a two-fold similarity between the stock in question, Ceres Power, and Arm Holdings itself. First is the technology. Arm’s silicon chips were so good that companies such as Apple were happy to buy them. But then there is the business model – where arguably Arm was cleverer still. It didn’t make chips, it just designed them. So it was spared the time, effort and expenditure involved in building factories and could instead devote those resources to research and to designing the best possible chips. It made money by licensing those designs to its customers: it received a royalty every time a chip was produced to one of its designs. As they appeared in iPhones and other mass-market devices, a great many were sold. Once it had done the hard work of coming up with the design, each actual “sale” cost it nothing at all. Ceres is hard at work developing a similar model. It has world-leading technology, in its case in fuel cells, one of environmentalists217; greatest hopes for clean power because they can convert the chemical energy in fuels such as natural gas and hydrogen into electricity without combustion by the use of a chemical process instead – which is far more efficient. “Efficiency is about 85pc if you can harness the heat produced as a by-product or about 60pc if not,” said Matt Evans, who holds the stock in his Ninety One UK Sustainable Equity fund. Internal combustion engines, by contrast, convert as little as a fifth of the energy in the fuel into useful energy. Sign up to our Business Briefing newsletter for a snapshot of the day's biggest business stories Read Questor’s rules of investment before you follow our tips But Ceres, like Arm, doesn’t just have good technology. It has in effect copied Arm’s business model too. For Ceres will not mass-produce its fuel cells. It instead pours all its energies into perfecting the design and then licensing it to companies that are skilled in high-volume production. For example, last year it signed a deal with Bosch under which the German engineering conglomerate will build a plant to make fuel cells to Ceres’s design. Bosch will pay licence fees when various milestones are reached and then a “royalty”; for each fuel cell made to the British firm’s design. Bosch is far from the only company interested in Ceres’s designs. Others such as Honda have already signed up, but many more can be expected to follow as there is a huge range of possible uses for the technology. “Ceres has been developing its fuel cells for about 20 years and they are more flexible than rival products – they can use a variety of fuels with minimal modification,” Mr Evans said. “They are also modular, so they can meet power needs large and small. "The potential size of the market for decentralised power is huge – and this is only one of the potential markets as the world’s transition to green power gathers pace.” It is this scope for enormous future sales that reassures the fund manager that the firm’s £2.7bn market value is not excessive. “In the short term the valuation can look inflated but there is now a lot less doubt about the opportunity set. It has partners that have made commitments. And there are no worries about the balance sheet: it doesn’t have to spend money on its own factories – its partners spend the capital,” he said. “This is a company that has held on to its technology, its intellectual property. We think it can continue to do so and to invest in Britain.” One advantage of Ceres’s substantial market value, he said, was that it made the firm “harder to be acquired”. So too do the 20pc stakes held by Bosch and Weichai, another customer. “If Softbank made an offer tomorrow I’d be loath to accept because the scale of the opportunity is so significant,” Mr Evans said. “But my view is that those two stakes make acquisition unlikely. “This is one of the UK’s best tech hopes. It’s not an overnight success story but it has a really well thought-through business and financial model and a really strong opportunity.” Questor says: buy Ticker: CWR Share price at close: £15.88

nivison: The graphs for AFC, ITM and CWR are all (so far) exactly the same today. You could use one to trace the other two. With the Ceres announcement theres nothing to scare the horses but nothing to light a fire under the share price either. Fine by me. I like the fact that cash has risen to £110 million despite taking on 88 more scientists and a pandemic. Thats extremely good going. It seem to me that lots of groundwork is happening here. The royalty strategy will produce cash flow without the need to take on huge debt. How much cash flow depends upon third parties. Thats always been the case and any other approach is extremely risky in my view. You can't have your cake and eat it and I prefer this approach. In the medium term I am hoping that AVL will do the business for this share and introduce more OEM's to the party. That may be easier once the pandemic has been effectively controlled. Lots to look forward to here I think.

bmel: Reducing their holding is hardly a surprise given the increase in the CWR share price over the last 3-6 months. Re-balancing their portfolio is normal for funds. All their big BG funds have reduced Tesla, Facebook (sold out completly) and Amazon. They do not expect them to continue the same levels of (stratospheric) growth and shift the money into stocks that will. Do you expect CWR to double again form here.....probably not in the next few years. Banks - one of the top rated post-covid recovery plays - and wiht dividends restored so not an unusual play for a big fund. Just depends what your personal (or fund) obtectives and mandate are.

dozey3: Nobody is into CWR with safety or dividends uppermost in their mind. The hope is for their main product to become a gold standard for small-scale efficient green electricity generation. The solid backing of large global players brings the dream closer, but that’s what it still is ... a dream. If the technology were to become firmly established then the share price will double again, perhaps two or three times, but then again every experienced AIM investor knows that some dreams turn into nightmares. Disclosure: despite slicing at fractions of the current sp, this is by far my largest holding.

soundsplausible: Hi folks, I have watched this one for many years but in the last 18 months this has fallen off my radar. I got quite a surprise the other day when I saw the share price, as this was for many years sitting in the doldrums - a jam tomorrow which never came type of company. This one has been motoring quite a bit in the last 12 months. Now my questions..... Apart for the booming share price, I am still trying to fathom what is going to be the turnabout moment for Ceres? When will there be a product on the shelf that will be mainstream and people/companyies will be able to buy it? When do they move away from being an R&D company with potential to one delivering a product(s) and profits year on year?

scrutable: The hydrogen speculation seems to be led/mirrored by the share price for ITM. IMO ITM is very overpriced because the operating margins have been so low, and the order book goes from one impressive one-off to another first application of its kind,. So there is no sales volume scaling up, yet, of hydrolysis plants of any one specification. That may be about to come under the influence of Linde in the joint venture. The CWR share price has been in lock step with ITM and seems to have fallen by a similar percentage on each retracement of ITM. I rely on Bosch global marketing strength. Ceres has a behemoth as partner. CWR will prosper from very high margin Bosch royalties. I don't expect them to have a significant cost of sales to support the cash stream to come, though it's only coming from a pilot line pro tem. SOFC seems to be more robust and the steel cell easier and cheaper to manufacture, in these ways superior to PEM (but I don't know enough about the relative merits of each) CWR has been visible to its supporters for more than ten years as one of the greatest industrial hopes in the UK. The growth is now clearly exponential as the five existing licencees launch their SOFC products at their own expense. This surge bodes to be be even greater as additional licencees are inevitably signed up.

brimach2: Duckyls, re your….. "On the other hand it’s not as if Ceres was in profit...it was, and still is, all about the future and the potential of its technology"…...Well, when taking into account the exaggerated share price of £5+ that Ceres got ramped too, that “potentialR21; you refer too was already, at that point, well over done and baked in to that inflated share price....several times over. I’ll take this opportunity to repeat my previous post to bring some facts and dose of reality to this topic. In general,share prices and company valuations throughout the hydrogen sector are elevated beyond belief. They are now returning to earth with a bump. And yes, that includes Ballard, Powercell and other companies I’ve mentioned in these posts. Company values were sky high across the board even in the face of the fact that after a decade+ in fuel cell development almost all the fuel cell manufacturers out there have never posted a profit…ever. It is a consequence of these extended company valuations throughout this whole sector that, irrespective of the Corona virus affect on the market,a correction was inevitable. Ceres has taken 16+years to get to where it is today but that has been achieved on the back of its shareholders who bore a heavy toll along the way. Look at Ceres’s history. During the first hydrogen bubble around 2000/1, with all the hype surrounding that at the time, Ceres’s shares rose to an astronomical value, somewhere in the region of £165 a share, only to fall to a tenth of that within two years when it became obvious that there wasn’t going to be any uptake of this new ‘hydrogen thing’. Ceres spent many torrid years after that in the doldrums until 2009 when it raised £31 million in a discounted placing. Nine years later it raised a further £77 million (in 2018), in another big placing and followed this with a 10:1 share consolidation. Now, I have no idea how many years ago Ben made the remark you quoted….i.e. ‘this will struggle to get to 15p' but taking that consolidation into account the share price today is just 38.7p in old money. That aside, the cash that Ceres’s currently has in the bank is there only because of these cash calls and on the back of shareholder dilution, not from any profits it has ever made. For it has never made a profit. And yet, Ceres’s market cap peaked earlier this month at a startling c.£785 million (sp of £5+ per share) on a last reported revenue of just £16 Million. That is a nose-bleeding multiple of 50 times revenue, and that’s against a reported loss of £8 million in the same period. As I said earlier, I don’t expect any lightbulb moments to come out of the results leading up to December 2019 when they are released on the 16th March. Perhaps another reason management sold while they had such a favourable window of opportunity. Set against the markets Ceres trades in, it is likely that ahead of those results being announced, people should prepare for the probability that they will be accompanied with a revenue impact statement and a contingency adjustment for the affects of the Corona virus on the business, lowering revenue expectations for this Qtr (to end March) and in all probability the next Qtr as well (to end of June). Alarm bell’s were ringing aloud for shareholders (or should have been) when on the 7th Feb all of the top management....CEO, CFO, COO, CCO, and CTO sold every one of their exchangeable options at c. £4. Five top management all sold together, that was telling.
